Giants sign K Gano to three-year extension
The New York Giants announced Sunday that they signed kicker Graham Gano to a three-year contract extension through the 2023 season.
The deal is worth $14 million, according to reports, with $9.5 million fully guaranteed.
The $4.67 million average makes Gano the third-highest paid kicker behind Baltimore’s Justin Tucker ($5.76M average) and San Francisco’s Robbie Gould ($4.75M).
Gano, 33, has made 20 consecutive field goals this season and is 21 of 22 overall with the lone miss coming from 57 yards. He converted kicks from 35 and 44 yards during Sunday’s 27-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
The 20 straight ties Aldrick Rosas (2018-19) for second-longest streak in franchise record. Josh Brown holds the record of 29, set during 2014-15.
Gano’s personal long streak is 28, established in 2017-18 when he was with the Carolina Panthers.
Gano has made 245 of 295 field goals during 12 NFL seasons with Washington (2009-11), Carolina (2012-18) and Giants. He missed the 2019 season after injuring his left knee late in the 2018 campaign and the Panthers released him prior to this season.
Gano has scored 1,057 career points, including 79 this season.
Gano was a Pro Bowl selection with the Panthers in 2017 when he made 29 of 30 field-goal attempts.
